Vector Photonics has joined the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) – the largest, active, network of photonics-related companies in Europe. EPIC’s membership, currently 644 companies, spans many industry sectors, including photonics integrated circuits; optical components; lasers and sensor production; optical fibre communications; and further industries enabled by photonics-related technologies.
Neil Martin, CEO at Vector Photonics, said, “Vector Photonics is pleased to join EPIC. It has worldwide recognition and influence, providing a strong, network environment for photonics-enabled companies. EPIC seeks to facilitate technological and commercial growth for members and to identity new and emerging photonics markets for research and development. EPIC is a critical part of the European photonics industry.”
Dr. Jose Pozo, Director of Technology and Innovation at EPIC, added, “Vector Photonics brings an exceptional contribution to the consortium through its revolutionary new, PCSEL-based, compound semiconductor laser technology. Neil Martin was a keynote speaker at our AGM in Glasgow, last year. It’s great to have his new company amongst our membership and to retain his photonics expertise within our organisation.”
